Drawback Rate Search


Duty Drawback is a customs program that allows for the refund of certain duties, taxes, and fees collected on imported goods that are subsequently exported or destroyed. This can help to level the playing field for domestic manufacturers who face competition from imported goods and can help to reduce the cost of exporting goods.
Duty Drawback is available to any person or company that imports goods into the United States and subsequently exports or destroys those goods.
To claim Duty Drawback, you must file a claim with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) using the appropriate forms and providing supporting documentation. The CBP has specific requirements and time limits for filing claims, so it is important to carefully review the guidelines before submitting a claim.
Most duties and taxes collected on imported goods are eligible for Duty Drawback, with some exceptions. Some common types of duties and taxes that may be eligible for Duty Drawback include:
  • Customs duties
  • Excise taxes
  • Harbor maintenance fees
  • Merchandise processing fees
Yes, there are some goods that are not eligible for Duty Drawback. These include goods that have been entered into a Foreign Trade Zone or goods that have received a duty-free treatment under a free trade agreement or other trade preference program. In addition, goods that have been consumed or used in the United States are not eligible for Duty Drawback.
